The South Wold South Pony Club held a two day sleep over event for members over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The children who attended aged between 10 and 18 attained achievement badges and learnt the art of formation riding.

In the afternoon instructors Liz Madley and Vicky Thornley joined in the fun with the riders wearing pyjamas for a show jumping lesson.

Once all the ponies were settled into their paddocks for the night everyone enjoyed a fish and chip supper followed by a treasure hunt, jelly eating competition and obstacle races until dark.

Sunday morning everyone was up early to prepare their ponies for a full day of x-country training in Lincoln with Kate Knight and Liz Madley.

The weekend was a huge success and enjoyed by everyone.

The club covers an area of East Lincolnshire from Boston to Louth and offers training in all disciplines throughout the year.
